      Bio

      The Offspring were our favorite punk band of the 1990s and continued their successful run well into the new millennium. The screaming vocals of Dexter and the intense guitar riffs of Noodles made them rock gods during the golden age of KROQ and Southern California rock music. In their near quarter century as a band, the Offspring are still going strong and are currently on tour. Don't miss a date on the Offspring concert schedule 2011.

      The Offspring was founded by high school classmates Dexter Holland and Greg Kriesel who met each other on their cross-country team. They decided to form a band when they were denied entrance into a Social Distortion concert. They hired Noodles, the school janitor, on lead guitar and released their first single "Ill Be Waiting" in 1987. The band continued to record even though Dexter was conducting research for a PhD in Molecular Biology at USC. The band was signed to an indie label deal with Nemesis Records and released their self-titled debut in 1989. While the record didn't take off, they scored huge buzz with their sophomore album, Ignition, released in 1992. The Offspring tour dates included a near two-year outing alongside punk rockers Pennywise and So-Cal favorite No Doubt. The Offspring, along with other So-Cal acts, were about to explode onto the Mainstream rock scene.

      The Offspring released their breakthrough album and biggest hit to-date, Smash, in 1994. The album was a runaway hit and featured the singles "Self Esteem" and "Gotta Get Away" before selling over 16 million copies worldwide. The bandmates decided to start their own label, Nitro Records, and signed acts such as the Vandals and Guttermouth. The Offspring themselves then signed with major label Columbia Records and released Ixnay on the Hombre in 1996. While the album reached platinum status, it was considered a departure from Smash and sold only a fraction of the amount of records. The Offspring were not out of the count and returned with the multi-Platinum album Americana in 1998 which featured the hit "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)". They closed out the decade as one of the top rock acts of the '90s and continued to tour and record.

      During the 2000s, the band released Conspiracy of One in 2000, Splinter in 2003, and Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace in 2008 all which were certified Gold or Platinum. The Offspring tour dates included a headlining stint on the Vans Warped Tour and a Europe and Japan wide tour in 2005. In 2008, The Offspring tour dates included a headlining stint alongside Incubus on the Soundwave Festival and they headlined the 19th annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas. The guys are currently in the studio recording their ninth album. In addition, an extensive Offspring concert schedule has been planned for 2011. The Offspring tour dates are booked on a national tour this summer and fall. The Offspring concert schedule 2011 also includes a headlining stint at the Reading and Leeds Festival in the UK.
